Having done a bit of research into this well-known British treat, coconut ice (aka coconut sweets) is definitely inspired by “nariyal ke laddu” which are traditional Indian sweets made with coconut, sugar and milk.
In Mauritius, where my mum is from, they have a similar version called “gateau coco” which is made with a sugar syrup (water + sugar).
This recipe only requires 3 ingredients and doesn't take much time to make them. That's always a plus whenever I'm in need for a quick recipe for a sweet treat.
1 (397g-can) condensed milk, which is roughly 91/2 fl. oz.
9 oz. icing sugar, sifted
12 oz. desiccated coconut
